    Just want to close the loop on this (har har). Ended up going to Publican and it was awesome. My guests said it was the best meal they had in Chicago. I can't recommend the carrots highly enough. And pixie dusted was great.

    Thanks vav

    Going to be up in Chicago tomorrow to Friday for some work meetings. Appreciate all the reccomendations in this thread.

    Question- is the Taste fun or a cluster? Seems like one of those things that sounds fun but then you get there and it’s super crowded and you’re waiting in line a ton...

    It's not that terrible, but I only go down for music every other year or so....and might be there for Black Star tomorrow.

    I'd say it probably depends on time of day/day of the week for food lines.

    This thread is old but my wife and I will be in the area Wednesday-Saturday night.
    Staying by Navy Pier and then with some friends (from TB) for a couple days by Rev. plan on doing Publican and a few other spots. Anything new to add in the last year?
